Comments: I used Necto to build a Marketing dashboard for post-launch analysis of services.
The tool is very easy to use , with a simple click , you can import Data from multiple sources and build Visualisations , It's very intuitive and very good for interactive analytics.
Excellent geo analytics support, readily integrate with maps and plots the charts
Another thing I like most is its self service capability , collaboration features with discussion/likes/dislikes and other interactive features to ensure effective data analysis. With Necto I really minimize the dependency on IT team.
In contrast Necto has a limited support for Big Data Analytics

Comments: The tool is extremely easy to use, with click you can import data, explore it and create the visualizations; yes it is that easy unlike other traditional Business Intelligence tools, where you have to write tons of code!

Moreover, it is excellent in memory performance, return results with clicks, matchless click to collaborate features, just initiate discussion on data points and context, connect relevant users and dashboards and explore suggestive auto insight.

Don¿t worry if you have multiple databases, my client¿s had diverse databases and were present in multiple geographies to our utter surprise it was really easy to get hold of all the datasets and adding to Necto, within a couple of days my client had a development environment available to start the analysis on their data.

Eye catching info graphics, image bank, numerous chart options and functionality for slicing and dicing, amazing recommendation engine which can give more insights to users.

Gives IT more power to govern and manage the platform with ease, on the other hand it is equally powerful for business users.

Panorama can help medium AND small business us to replace costly BI tools and bring down the licensing cost and made tool available to more users.
